Equipment

  • baking sheet

Ingredients

  • 8-10 filo sheets you might need a few extra in case of breakage
  • cup melted butter or olive oil this is for brushing on your filo sheets. I really like to use the melted butter, but you can use olive oil if you prefer.
  • 4 salmon filets mine were about 2-3 ounces each
  • ¼ cup feta
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh oregano
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This isn't a must-do, but it really helps with cleanup.
  • On your surface, lay out one sheet of filo dough. These are fragile, so be careful. Brush it lightly with olive oil. The sheet doesn't need to be soaked, just a light brushing.
  • Add another sheet on top and again, brush lightly with olive oil. Place your salmon filet in the middle of one of your short ends, as shown in the photos.
  • Brush the filet with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then add about 1 tablespoon of feta and about 1 tablespoon oregano. Then top this with about ¼ cup spinach.
  • Fold in the sides on the filo, it might break a little, so don't stress. Then gently roll the salmon over and over until it is wrapped in a parcel. Check the photos for descriptions. Sorry, for some reason this is really hard to write out. Brush the top with olive oil as well.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining 3 salmon filets. Place on the prepared baking sheet and into the oven.
  • These will need to bake for 18-25 minutes. They should be a beautiful golden brown. This will actually steam the salmon as it bakes, creating the perfect salmon texture!
  • Remove from oven. They are best served right away while they are still warm!
  • If you want to use these for meal prep, allow them to cool to room temperature, then store them in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. Just know that They will not be crispy when you reheat but are still delicious.
  • Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it.
